Entries for March, 2007

Weekend

I will not post new entries this weekend and am putting comments in authentication mode, meaning commenters will have to jump through a hoop to post. Enabling authentication will hopefully discourage drive-bys. For the weekend, here are a couple thoughtful articles: “A note on the future: Deliberately disabling children”

Pro-aborts suppress pro-life free speech

Two events this week spotlighted the truth: People calling themselves “pro-choice” aren’t that at all. They are pro-abortion. They are anti-choice. They do all they can to suppress the free speech of pro-lifers. At a March 27 rally sponsored by liberal feminists in Washington, D.C., to promote the reintroduction of the Equal Rights Amendment, one […]

The inconvenient truth about Terri Schiavo and euthanasia

Many comments to my post yesterday, column today The most obvious thread between abortion support and euthanasia support is promotion of death. The underlying thread is selfishness, i.e., promotion of convenience. Over 90% of abortions are for convenience, either as primary or secondary birth control. Likewise, every euthanasia supporter I read on this blog supports […]

Death Angel vs. Terri Schiavo

This Saturday, March 31, will mark the second anniversary of the death by starvation and dehydration of Terri Schiavo. Too bad she wasn’t a convicted murderer. She’d still be going through the appeals process. Yes, had Terri been a convicted murderer, MSM would certainly have taken up her cause as well, like it did the […]

Nurse

Last night Rae linked to this short film in the comments section of one of my posts with a little zinger, “Hey Jill, here’s a video that might appeal to you. I bet if you were still a nurse and knew you could get away with this you’d do it in a heartbeat.” Well, I […]

The healthy baby with “zilch” chance of survival

This great story was just sent to me by reader KLTV Jennifer and Taylor White had been married for several years when they decided to add children to their family. A first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. Then last March, Jennifer became pregnant again. Just as the critical first six weeks approached a blood sample […]

If only she had aborted

The Freakonomics of giving $500 to adopt, not abort

Well, sit me down and shut you up. One of the Freakonomics authors

Semi-identical twins discovered

Rampell argues that if only poor people in America could get free birth control and more comprehensive sex education, have “easy access” to abortions in unregulated clinics, and receive more government-sponsored childcare by expanding the welfare state, then unwanted pregnancies would be a thing of the past and Americans would live happily ever after.

Oh, the joy of a liberal utopia.

Rampell doesn’t pause to consider other factors that have seriously contributed to the disparity between the rich and poor on out-of-wedlock births. Instead of looking at the issue in terms of personal choice regarding marriage and childbirth, as well as personal responsibility, and respecting all people as rational human beings capable of self-government, she concludes that a “trap” is being laid; someone must be doing something to these women or not enough for them. Neither is truly the case….

When it comes to finding solutions that will help low-income single mothers, we need to do more than just dish out contraceptives (which will be ineffective for those who are actually choosing to have babies out of wedlock), herd them into unregulated abortion clinics, give them “comprehensive” sex education that fails to factor in the spiritual and moral dimension of human beings, and then continue their dependence on government and the cycle of poverty by increasing welfare programs….

I can just hear the mockery now and the hysterical screams of “Don’t stigmatize my choice to have sex!” But no one is stigmatizing sex, let alone your choice to have it. What’s being stigmatized in our culture is marriage and the choice not to have sex….

[S]ome of us have a higher view of women — that they don’t have to be controlled by their base desires, by poverty, by fear, by dependency — all of which drive us to more constricted and unhappy lives.

We can do better. We have done better. And we can be better again.

~ D.C. McAllister (pictured), responding to Catherine Rampell’s assertion that “sex is for rich people” and that “a trap” is laid for poor people who want to have sex, The Federalist, October 21
